Definitely not the tater salad your gramma used to make (unless of course she was from SA). The recipe calls for 1 can of mixed veggies. We usually substitute that with fresh or frozen peas & corn. Try it either way ya like.

I liked more veggies in the salad. I didn't have canned so cooked carrots, peas and edamame beans and added. Much enjoyed. Thanks!

This is a good salad but it is not totally Argentinean. It is also found in Central America, Mexico, and most of the European countries. Aways served in the Slavic Countries.

This was good! I had some frozen mixed vegetables left over and decided to make this salad. I thought it would be "just ok" but I was wrong! I liked it a lot and will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe! Definitely a keeper!
